I get distracted easily. By shiny things, loud noises, Magic cards, eBay, Craigslist, Facebook, the like.
Pretty much anything.
And lately I’ve been distracted by looking for a job.
It’s not that the writing thing isn’t working out, it’s that the writing thing isn’t working out quite well enough to support me. We’re not starving (which is evident from my waistline) or in danger of losing our house, but we’re eating through our savings a little more quickly than I’d hoped, so I’m probably re-entering the workforce. It’s not a huge deal, I have skills that people are willing to pay for, and I have an interview on Monday.
So that’s happening.
And I finished most of my Bubba work for the year, except the super-secret Skeeter Christmas story that I’m working on that should release next week, just in time for some ho-ho-hilarity.
Guess that’s not much of a secret anymore, is it?
So that’s kinda what’s going on here. I’m looking for full-time employment, or part-time employment, and working hard on resurrecting a local theatre advocacy organization, and writing a bit, and playing Magic. Now it’s time to go work on the rewrites for Paint it Black.
You know, that fourth book in The Black Knight Chronicles that you guys have been waiting a year and a half for? Yeah, the first draft is done, the revised draft is due to my publisher around the first of the year, and hopefully we’ll get that in your hands early in 2013.
